Job Description




Night Nurse

We are one of the major not-for-profit care providers in the UK, specialising in providing high-quality, person-centered care to older people in care homes and extra care housing across the country.

At OSJCT, we care about our residents and each other. That means you’ll have plenty of opportunities for advancement while working for a growing company. Because we are a non-profit trust, we invest every penny we make in the people who live in our houses as well as those who work here. This translates into higher-quality care and gorgeous residences for our residents, as well as competitive compensation and excellent training and development opportunities for our employees.

We deliver exceptional care by collaborating with prominent experts in dementia and senior care. And we’re now modernising our care home portfolio by restoring existing homes as well as moving into new, inspirational, contemporary houses.

As we expand nationally, we need more people with the appropriate combination of talents, passion, and desire to help us grow even more.

Paternoster House, located in a peaceful corner of the attractive Cotswold town of Cirencester, is a well-established care home that provides residential care and 24-hour nursing support to 40 residents.
